Captain Johnny is USCG licensed for sail and power. He grew up sailing, and has raced sailboats up and down the eastern seaboard. He has run tow boats and larger passenger vessels. In a small rural county in Virginia, he and his wife Amy taught English. He is currently working toward a South Carolina Master Naturalist certification. Asked what he likes most about these sailing trips on the Stiletto 27’s, he says, “Sailing a fast but super stable cat through a beautiful low country landscape is a blast.  But really, it’s meeting people from around the country and sharing a passion for being on the water that never gets old.”
